GETTING KIDS IN THE KITCHEN
Getting your kids to eat enough fruit and vegetables can be a challenge.
But food educator Glenda Gourley and her teenage daughter Claire say they have the answer.
An online cooking programme created by the mother-daughter team promises to get kids in the kitchen and making smart food choices.
Ms Gourley says the It’s My Turn to Cook Tonight Bosch School Holiday Programme, supported by 5+ A Day, is the ultimate win-win for parents.
“Your kids are likely to be healthier if they help with dinner because study after study shows that a child who has practical food skills makes better food choices.”
The latest Food and Nutritional Guidelines released by the Ministry of Health recommend parents involve their children in grocery shopping and the cooking of family meals.
Running from October 2 to 4, the programme will allow children to learn to cook while interacting with other children online.
The pair was recognised by The Jamie Oliver Foundation on its website after originally trialling the programme in April this year.
Registration is $25 for eBook and $45 for hard-copy versions of the programme’s books and access to all online resources.
